A Brightening Hydrafacial?
Skin can start to look a bit dull and lack radiance from the dry and harsh air during the winter and cold weather months or from too much sun exposure during the bright and sunny summer months or from pollution and the stresses of city life. Often these environmental irritants and stresses can suck the moisture from your skin, exacerbate irritation, and even contribute to uneven brown spots or hyperpigmentation.
A brightening Hydrafacial, one calibrated to address these types of skin concerns, will help with the natural turnover of skin cells out of whack from the irritants and stresses of day-to- day life and the natural aging process. A first deep cleansing and exfoliating step will slough away and remove any build-up of dead skin cells, uncovering the soft, smooth, newer layer
of skin waiting to emerge below. For concerns about brightening, a Hydrafacial will typically focus on a combination of stabilized Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid.
Both Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid will help revitalize the skin’s natural functions, strengthen the tissue, and improve elastin and collagen formation. Antioxidants like Vitamin C can help to protect against free radical damage from urban pollution and sun exposure. A stabilized form of Vitamin C is used here to help the skin gain the most benefit from Vitamin C’s ability to treat and prevent changes associated with photoaging like hyperpigmentation. Hyaluronic Acid is found naturally occurring in our skin. It helps to both retain and regulate water levels, repair your skin’s natural moisture barrier, and speed wound healing. However, over time our bodies produce less Hyaluronic Acid. Supplementing the level of Hyaluronic Acid helps the skin to become more hydrated and appear more plump, especially important since hydration is the foundation for healthy and radiant skin.
Even after a single Hydrafacial, comparing before and after many report a more even and radiant skin tone. Hydrafacial’s focus on hydration can help clients to achieve a brightened, smoothed, and moisturized complexion. Consulting with an experienced Hydrafacial provider to come up with a personalized series of regular treatments can help address existing concerns as well as increase your skin’s resilience to minimize future discoloration or dullness. A personally tailored combination of gentle exfoliation with revitalizing and brightening ingredients can help to combat skin dullness and discoloration in a gentle and sensitive skin-friendly way that avoids concerns of additional post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that more harsh treatments may risk in those prone to discoloration following certain types of skin trauma.
Because Hydrafacial is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment designed for and customizable to all skin types, tones, and sensitivities it is also a popular complement to and enhancement for other aesthetic skin treatments, which, while also highly effective, can be more intensive or invasive. For those with issues of hyperpigmentation or brown spots in search of brightening, Hydrafacial works well with IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial treatments. A study combining these two treatments together in a single protocol saw a 30% further reduction in the appearance of discoloration when Hydrafacial and IPL treatment were used together compared with the effects seen from IPL photofacial treatment alone.
